Attention Realtors

Wouldn’t it be great if people visiting the homes of your clients started asking them who their realtor is?

Here’s how that could work…

I’ve often had strangers see my art at an art show and tell me that one of their friends has a painting of mine in their home.  When people see original art on display in a home; they inquire about it, remember it, and make connections through that artwork.

Realtors have used my artwork for staging and as client gifts.  This can lead to some wonderful opportunities to connect with new clients.  The painting that you give as a gift is a beautiful billboard for you–24/7 soft sell advertising.  People notice original art.  They ask questions.  Conversations begin…  “I like that painting.  Where did you get it?”  “It was a gift from my realtor.”  “Wow.  Who’s your realtor?”  …and then the conversation is all about you–what a wonderful job you did for them, how quickly their old house sold, how you found them the perfect home to purchase, etc.  It’s a conversation that starts because of the gift of that painting–a very positive conversation and one that people remember.

Let’s get those conversations started.                                                                                                               DSCF4837 copy 2

California Dreamin’

Occasionally there are some pretty good perks to being an artist.  One for me was when I was flown out to California as a guest for the 2nd Anniversary of a bookstore opening…   during FEBRUARY!  While there, I walked along the Los Robles Trail in Thousand Oaks and took a multitude of photos.  These are some paintings in the series, “California Dreamin’ “, which was inspired by that walk along the trail.

The Beauty of Winter

Well, it’s another cold winter day with a fresh snowfall.  This year the snowbanks are high and there always seems to be more shovelling to do.  I was never a big fan of winter, but I’ve come to appreciate the beauty much more since I’ve been painting winter scenes.

Here are a few of those scenes…
